About this Cook
I'm a clinical dietitian, working in large county hospital in Minneapolis, in the burn unit and the neuro/surgical ICU. I have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. Son is a Civil Engineer, 2 daughters - one is an Interior Designer and one is a small animal Veterinarian. My husband is also a civil engineer. We're getting close to retirement and are trying to figure out where we want to live after retiring.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, "comfort foods", healthy foods with lots of veges, fruits. Love to bake everything from bread to desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not many - I like to make new things all the time.
My cooking triumphs
Holiday meals - I like to cook for big groups.
My cooking tragedies
I can usually figure out a way to save my failures so I'm still able to serve it.

Apple Pie Muffins
Mine didn't turn out well. I would recommend not filling them to the top of the muffin tin, as the recipe says - they ran over and didn't raise well, so they were difficult to get out of the muffin tins. They tasted good, but I have better recipes to use for this type of muffin.
